  1. Really nice pictures, I know how hard it is to get good pictures of animals and birds can be the hardest especially when your time is limited.

    Thanks for sharing your adventures I really enjoy your images.

  2. Excellent work Shelly!
    Love the Cinnamon Chested Bee Eater, and the love bird peeking out of the tree!

    • Oh Vonda. Would you believe that the Cinnamon Chested Bee Eater is really not that. Felix sent me a list of the birds with the correct names. I had about 6 wrong. But, I have fixed them.

  3. Hi, Shelly, Nice photos. I like them all. (I mean all of them, not just the birds.) Thanks for sharing. Can you believe that I am still working on my photos? Don’t know when I will finish them. HA!

  4. Hi Shelly, I have looked at all of your African photographs. You took some amazing images. Your bird photos are excellent, what camera and lens did you use? It looks like you had another great trip. You are really on a roll. Looking forward to seeing your Iceland photos. Vicki
